Bona Fide is an intimate conversation about the commodity of modern love.

Production is scheduled for January 2015.

This film has been several years in the making--it was inspired by a magazine article I read in 2003, was written over the course of the next 4 years, and has been incubating ever since. It would be amazing to see it come to life.

Part of the planning included coming up with a meaningful way to recognize the contributions of those who give to the project, which is why I approached my friend Corrine Hunt, the internationally recognized First Nations artist, to create an original artwork for the project. The idea being that by employing Corrine to create the artwork, her beautiful piece will help raise funds for the film, thus allowing me to hire the amazingly talented people to do what they do best to bring the film to life. The hope is to generate a continuous cycle of creativity.

We have since made the piece, entitled Flow, into three different-sized artwork prints, as well as sterling sliver earrings, a pendant necklace, and a charm.

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge I've faced as a producer of other independent short film projects is booking the crew you need for your shoot days, which is made all the more difficult when you don't have the budget to pay people their day rate, so you lose them to paying jobs.

Filmmaking is a team effort, and you need to provide every member of the team with the tools they need to create beautiful moving images. I value the contributions of each member of the team and I want them to be at their best, because I believe their talents translate directly onto the screen, thus allowing the film to be the success that I envision it to be. With the right people in place, anything is possible.
